Official Synopsis – Littlefinger approaches Ned to tell him that he’s heard about the book of lineages that Pycelle gave him. Littlefinger also points out that Jon Arryn’s squire, Ser Hugh of the Vale, was knighted shortly after his Lord’s death. He suggests that Ned speak with a local armorer whom Arryn visited before his death. (Source: HBO)



Walking through the gardens of King’s Landing.

Petyr Baelish: I hear you’re reading a boring book.

Eddard Stark: Pycelle talks too much.

Petyr Baelish: He never stops. Do you know Ser Hugh of the Vale? Not surprising. Until recently, he was only a squire… Jon Arryn’s squire. He was knighted almost immediately after his master’s untimely death.

Eddard Stark: Knighted for what? Why are you telling me this?

Petyr Baelish: I promised Cat that I’d help you.

Eddard Stark: Where is Ser Hugh? I’ll speak to him.

Petyr Baelish: A singularly bad idea. Do you see that boy there? One of Varys’s little birds. The Spider has taken a great interest in your comings and goings. Now look there. That one belongs to the Queen. And do you see that Septa pretending to read her book?

Eddard Stark: Varys or the Queen?

Petyr Baelish: No. She’s one of mine. Is there someone in your service whom you trust completely?

Eddard Stark: Yes.

Petyr Baelish: The wiser answer was no, my Lord. Get a message to this paragon of yours… Discreetly. Send him to question Ser Hugh. After that, you might want him to visit a certain armorer in the city. He lives in a large house at the top of the street of Steel.

Eddard Stark: Why?

Petyr Baelish: I have my observers, as I said, and it’s possible that they saw Lord Arryn visit this armorer several times in the weeks before his death.

Eddard Stark: Lord Baelish, perhaps I was wrong to distrust you.

Petyr Baelish: Distrusting me was the wisest thing you’ve done since you climbed off your horse.
